Dapitan Literary Folio


The Flame, aside from serving as a stronghold in maintaining a reliable journalistic tradition of liberal and fearless reportage, annually celebrates the artistic and literary prowess of the Artlet community by inviting them to submit their works for Dapitan.

Dapitan is a literary folio made through the compilation of selected contributions from the Artlet community. It has kept vigil throughout the years of the Faculty’s existence in maintaining ablaze the Promethean fire of creative inspiration. This is part of the publication’s duty in honoring the altar of the giants, its family of literati predecessors upon whose shoulders the Flame rests.

Dapitan: Ina

Art by TCHEKY NICOLE CABRERA/ THE FLAME

The theme of this year’s Dapitan is Ina. The folio will be a a collection of narratives revolving on the mother – the multi-faceted and complicated figure who has brought on the existence of humanity, and how her role has continued to evolve over time. It will discuss how the mother is a concept both revered and desecrated in every human culture.  The theme portrays a universal figure that transforms depending upon the perspective of the individual. It is an outlet to all the different types of emotions and impact the mother has caused.
